Chakka, Hijra, Kinnar, fifty-fifty – just some of the phrases we use to describe transgenders in our country. Our binary understanding of gender simply does not allow us to accept the wide spectrum of sexuality that exists bewteen a man and a woman. Transgenders may be legally recognised as the third sex but in popular culture, films and media they are the objects of ridicule. This month, two suicides rocked the LGBT community - not just for the sheer bigotry and social pressure that precipitated them - but also for the way the media reported them. Sensationalism replaced facts and identity became victim to misgendering.
